Reviewed June 24, 2010

We booked the 10 man villa with pool for 3 nights at the beginning of june. The facilities were great, loads of cutlery, glasses, towels, toilet roll and toiletries. It was spotlessly clean and the staff were helpful and friendly.

I have seen on here at people have critised the location. We found the location fantastic. We were 5 minutes from a small supermarket and the hula hula bar which we went to everyday. In the evening the 15 minute stroll into the main harbour is beautiful and relaxing. All 8 of us girls walked home along the same coastal road at night and felt perfectly safe. We brought a few small tourches with us that helped however as it's still very untouched and therefore a little dark in places.

I didn't see inside any of the main hotel rooms so i wouldn't know what they are like but the Villa was fantastic and i would thoroughly receommend to families or groups of mates alike. xxx

It was a clean and well-maintained hotel, but a bit too expensive for the standard of the hotel. It is a very simple 3-star room with no bar, no restaurant and no service. Although it was a peak season, I found I have paid way too much for this very avarage accomodation in a slightly remote location. It is a good 20-25 min hike from the town center. With luggage, it takes more of course! The breakfast was minimal. Again, you get clean rooms and nice staff, but, compared to other 3-star hotels in Hvar, with a more central location, it was a bit of a rip-off. I wouldn't recommend unless it is a bargain deal. Don't ever pay over 90 euros for this hotel, that is in the peak season.

Clean apart hotel. Breakfast is nice.Very helpful staff.Check out was at 10!
This place is far for a small island.
There is a walking path to old town which is very nice but it takes 15 min.It was o.k for us but unless you like walking back at midnight, find somewhere else..You can also find a taxi sure but taxi was very expensive.
We drove with taxi there with our luggages and for dinner we went to old town by walking. The room was big, the reception was so helpful with our questions.If you have few days and too much luggage and just plan to visit old town my recommendation is find some place in old town. Our room was looking to the Pakleni islands which was sooo beautiful..The bed was comfortable, there was also a balcony.

Initially very disapointed as room was SO small - not much bigger than the bed and balcony overlooked a half finished building. The picture in the brochure looked as though it was on the beach and described it as a boutique hotel! It is an average B and B although some of the rooms are quite nice if you get one facing the sea (need to book superior to guarantee a sea view and bigger room). Staff unhelpful when we wanted to change room even though they were not full. Rep eventually got us changed to an apartment attached to hotel which was nice but obviously cost more which we were not expecting to spend. Breakfast very basic and finshes at 9.30 prompt. Walk into town tedious as a full 20 minutes and part of it on way back is up hill. Standard room which we had and which was very small would be OK if staying for two or three nights but not for two weeks which we were. Better to book a superior room or apartment. If you have an apartment not really worth having breakfast as can make own. Small supermarket up road which is useful.

Positives about this Hotel is that it is extremely clean and well maintained. Staff happy to assist with any queries about the island etc.
Negatives (which unfortunately outweigh positives) are LOCATION. For a small island a 20 minute walk to the centre is unpleasant. Very difficult to get there with luggage etc.
Breakfast very basic but ends at 9.30 sharp which isn't ideal when attemtping a holiday lie in.

We booked this hotel because it wasn't as expensive as many in Hvar. It also was more basic and the location wasn't as good.

However there was air conditioning and the room was clean. It was not big but adequate and the bathroom was nice. We also had a balcony with chairs and a table.
Breakfast was what I would expect of a hotel of this grade and it was served on the terrace.

There was a bar which very few people used but was good for relaxing with a beer after a day sight seeing.

There is no pool but the beaches aren't too far away. Most beaches were crowded but you could find space.

There are no sandy beaches on Hvar and there are sea urchins so wear shoes for swimming. Many people don't and we saw one girl which was in great pain after having trod on one.

The big downside for us was the location. It was 15 mins walk from Hvar Town much of which is along the beach promenade, but as the hotel is not on the promenade. It was a 5 minute walk up a steep hill to get there. No much fun in the heat and with suitcases.

I wouldn't recommend the hotel due to it's location. Next time I would pay for a hotel in the harbour area.
